You can settle in one of the local Taverna’s and watch the world go by, the restaurants here offer up some of the best Greek food you will ever try, with fish freshly caught on the day served up in mouthwatering dishes.
The prices are as low as you would expect when away from the hustle and bustle of major destinations, and always look to eat in the Taverna’s that the locals frequent for the best food.
The bar owners in Almyrida will welcome you with open arms and you will find yourself returning night after night, to chat about Crete, local stories and world news.
The longer you visit a bar in Almyrida means the more extra shots you get given to you, or the occasional free beer, this is Cretan hospitality at its best.
Because the village was not built for tourists, there isn’t much to do apart from sunbathe and a little shopping so make sure you hire a car or bike and get exploring the wonderful countryside.
If you want something more then you can always visit the town of Chania, and get some great shopping bargains, or spend the night in its many small clubs, bars and water front cafes.
